and now we interrupt this program for some finished objects…

Yes it happened. I finished my first adult sweater of 2015. I also have whipped out a sweater for my daughter and a hat. Two out of the three patterns were born out of needing a change of pace from working on adult sweaters.

I am most excited about the Hazelwood Sweater. While making it did feel like my fingers were at the spa( it was done entirely in cashmere). It is the best fitting sweater I have made. I took a look at my latest custom fit measurements and the schematic in the pattern. I was able to figure out adjustments that were needed.. the biggest thing that gave me a bit of anxiety was the understanding that a raglan constructions would not give me  an armhole depth that was too big for my chest measurement. So I contacted the shop, emailed the designer and even posted a couple questions before I decided to give the pattern a go.. the end result is something I am very happy with.
